You can practically feel the sun in your eyes and the air rapidly moving across your helmet’s visor as you watch this on-board video of a windshieldless 1950s Corvette racer. This one, in full 360-degree video provides incredible sound and shows a lot of the things you’d normally miss in a video.
I think it’s telling that all of us here at Jalopnik were going back-and-forth about whether or not to write up this story of a dealership speeding in a customer’s car, mostly because we’ve seen so many worse videos of dealership abuse. But that’s just us being jaded. Really, it’s worth calling out all these examples…
Every time we write about the mid-engine 2020 Corvette—and it’s been a lot lately—its price tag inevitably comes up. We at Jalopnik, like others, have speculated that this powerful and advanced sports car will carry a much heftier price tag than the current front-engine Corvette, which starts around $55,000 and goes…
There are many ways to feel about this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette listed for nearly $217,000, mainly because it doesn’t look like most other Corvettes—from its time or from any other. What you see here, friends, is a Corvette with two extra doors and ample seating for four, all for about double the base price of a 2019…
Here you are, driving to the polls to VOTE TODAY in your C4 Corvette Grand Sport convertible! And if you’re not this guy, make sure you get out there and vote anyway.
Take one totally trashed 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. Take one, frankly rather nice, 1963 Volvo 122S Amazon. Now get some sort of mad wizard machine like in Jeff Goldblum’s horrifically disgusting The Fly. What you get is this SEMA special, known as the V06.
Do you sometimes get the feeling that things are bad and terrible all of the time? Well, they are. But! There are rays of hope and joy that break through the clouds of our misery on occasion. This drone-shot video of Formula Drift racer Matt Field’s 1,060 horsepower Corvette tearing up a mountain road is definitely …
A Ferrari V8 sounds like a Ferrari V8, largely, because it has a flat-plane crankshaft setup. No other American V8 muscle cars, with the exception of the Voodoo V8 found in the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R, have flat-plane crank V8s. Until this guy came along with his modified C6 Corvette Z06.
General Motors has filed a flurry of patent applications for active aerodynamic systems over the past couple of years, and the latest set of approved ones could have some interesting uses on cars we’ve been keeping our eyes on. One of the patents shows an active aero system specifically for a mid-engine vehicle, while…
I have long lamented that Datsun 240Z prices have skyrocketed so much in recent years. But I remain optimistic because it seems like most owners of those cars are committed to keeping them nice, or at least doing something truly interesting with them. One of those owners is Tyler Powell, who’s done a monster…
The mid-engine Corvette has been an enigma. We know it’ll be fast. We know the engine is behind the driver. That’s really about it. We don’t even really think it’ll be called a “Corvette.” But thanks to new video from the Nurburgring, we know exactly what it sounds like. And that it’ll have an automatic transmission.
What’s this? Our mid-engine Corvette bonanza continues, this time with spy video from the Nürburgring? This button works so we’re gonna keep hitting it, folks.
Are you sick of the mid-engine Corvette yet? Trick question, of course you aren’t. You desperately want to see it for real, desire to have it in your hermetically sealed garage, dream of hearing its American V8 howl behind your head for you and you alone. That day is not today! But until it is, enjoy more spy shots.
What’s this? Even more photos of the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette hanging around the Nürburgring? It’s truly a Labor Day miracle.
It may be Labor Day in the U.S., but the Corvette team is skipping the holiday to test a certain prototype at the world’s most intense race track. Here’s the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette arriving at a testing center near the Nürburging, and with less camouflage than we’ve seen previously.
Perhaps realizing few will pay attention to or talk about it after the expected coming of its successor, the ancient mythological beast known as the mid-engine Corvette, this current-generation Corvette Z06 evidently wanted to get some attention by fighting a wall at the Nürburgring in Germany. It lost.
I remember the first car I drove with more than 700 horsepower. It was Tony Angelo’s Formula Drift car and it was terrifying. It was exhilarating. It changed my whole idea of how cars can work. I drove it off the track in a matter of minutes.
The Whelen Engineering Action Express Racing Chevrolet Corvette Coyote Daytona Prototype was racing, and winning, in IMSA’s top tier Prototype class just two years ago. In fact, it took drivers Dane Cameron and Eric Curran to the series driver’s championship in 2016.
We’ve been hearing rumors about a mid-engine Corvette for a couple of years, and while GM is keeping it very under wraps, it turns out you can learn a hell of a lot from stuff floating out on the open internet. Including that everyone’s talking about two different cars entirely.
Renting a car can be glamorous or a total cluster, depending on whether you want it more for the experience or as a means to get somewhere for the lowest price. This new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 rental at Hertz leans toward the former, but don’t expect to get far—it has a cap at 75 miles per day before fees rack up.
